, should be ashamed of themselves. >> this from ronald reagan's old budget director, architect of the largest tax cut in american history? >> it's rank demagoguery. we should call it for what it is. >> welcome to 60 minutes on cnbc. i'm morley safer. in this edition, we look at two of the topics dominating the american economic landscape: jobs and taxes. first, we meet with president obama's so-called jobs czar. then we visit a struggling town in the heartland. and finally, we take a look at a controversial income tax initiative in washington state. in the first decade of the 21st century, big american firms cut around 3 million jobs in the u.s., while adding almost as many overseas. no company went global more aggressively than general electric, the conglomerate that makes everything from refrigerators to m.r.i. machines to jet engines. yet as lesley stahl reported in october 2011, when president obama was looking for someone to help get americans back to work, he recruited a most unlikely candidate: the republican ceo of general electric, jeff immelt. >> the mood is dark. peo
is that they tried to make ronald reagan look like the devil. that he was going to start a war, that the economy would be even worse. when the people saw him in that debate, they said oh, i don't believe what these guys are saying about him. he seems to be a nice, reasonable guy who is making a clear statement based on what appeared to be the facts. and all the charges made against him don't seem to be true. neil: this is not a one-shot deal. jimmy carter didn't get a chance for another debate. folks were of the notion that he was a little serious. there are a couple of more debates. one for the vice president. there is time for them to make up ground to the argument. >> if the president can prove that the fact that he comes out with when he speaks among his friends, which i don't think he can. again, even the people that they say verify the facts are saying that the facts are being misused. >> where is mitt romney coming from? >> i think the independent. >> i have another crazy point. i think people who give lukewarm support for the president because they didn't trust what they were hearing few
bush is that he is not ronald reagan. >> largely as result of policies and priorities of the reagan administration, more people are becoming poorer and staying for than any time since world war ii. >> if there's anything left of ronald reagan's trickle-down theory, it seems to be anxiety which seems to be trickling down to just about every segment of our society. >> if you gave clarence thomas all little flower, you would think -- here is a man who is against everything that has lifted the level of life of millions of blacks. >> i hope his wife feeds him mustard eggs and butter and he dies like many black men, of heart disease. that so i feel. he is a reprehensible person. >> you call to gingrich in your words trickle down terrorists who face their agenda on division, exclusion and fear. you think middle-class americans need protection from that group? >> the new republican majority took a big step today on the legislative agenda, to demolish or damage government aid programs. many of them designed to help children and the poor. >> the bombing in oakland the city has focused renewed
to win is this was the most-watched debate since 1980 when ronald reagan ran against carter and there was only one debate that year. >> fox news is pulling out all the stops. check out the electoral p prediction map fox trotted out today. look at the red states. they gave mitt romney solid democratic states like new mexico and pennsylvania. really? polls should be a snapshot of the current state of the race and there's no doubt mitt romney is benefitting from his debate performance last week. but over "the new york times," the forecast shows president obama still holds a 70% chance of winning the election. the percentage is back in line with the state of the race before the political conventions. president obama made some gains after the dnc. mitt romney erase d those gains in the debate. so the race is back to where it was in august. eight years ago today, cnn poll after the first presidential poll put john kerry on top of george bush by one percentage point. the race is close. this should surprise no one in america. every vote is going to count. there's been bipartisan agr
ronald reagan lost in the 1980's, when it expired. i think there needs to come back. i would put back some type of entitlement authority that was lost after the nixon era. the subcommittees in congress are not very good managers of certain things. so there has to be a combination. you cannot leave the size and structure of the government we have in place. this government functions on a 19th century organization model despite the availability of 21st century technology. everybody is automating everything and it's very slow. you look at the demographics of the federal workforce, they are aging. attrition would take care of a lot of this if it could be accompanied by rigorous management. president obama, prior to becoming president, the largest management he had was [ indiscernible.] >> i think that was a plug. the gentleman with the red tide. let's look for the microphone. >> i am with northstar policy navigation and james callan associates. we have enormous potential in the united states to develop our energy resources. it seems a lot of it is a communications challenge. when you have
gap, two points from the president. this is person and ronald reagan was the last republican to win. maybe credit is, well, to this guy, republican pennsylvania governor, only one of four governors to get a grade of "a." in a new ca testimony o -- ca testimony o tax reform policies. the fine governor joining me now. governor, thank you for coming. >>guest: thanks for having me on today. >>neil: maybe your policies are helping, but it cuts both way. i am sure you just want them to feel their lot is improving regardless of who politically benefits. why do you think the polls are narrowing? what are they discovering? >>guest: well, in regard to the polls here in pennsylvania, what i see are people that are starting to go back to work. we are slowly getting the economy moving in pennsylvania. we have growth going on in our energy sector, in our biotech sector. we saved jobs down in philadelphia with the refineries that were going out of business a year ago. there is a positive feeling that is starting, just starting. as it goes to the polls, i don't think that people in pennsylvania are
was your first vote for president? >> ronald reagan. so, actually, i have a photograph of my grandfather, my father, my brother and myself all voting together at the same time, so -- >> it's a family tradition. so, you take this seriously. >> it was always a, you know, a big deal in our family. >> you voted for president obama last time around. what are the final considerations? >> issues around the federal government spending, how it affects our business. so, it is my life blood. and my future. >> dyer's business partner is -- she knows just how devastating these cuts could be to loudon. >> the dysfunctional process that brought us to the brink of this problem, which is going to be as serious a problem for our region as the fallout of the car industry was to detroit. it will be small businesses like ours that are going to be hit the most. it's projected 2 million jobs will be lost, half of which will be from small companies will be hit earliest and hardest. it's going to be very unfortunate. >> she sees this as a symptom of the dysfunction of congress. >> when you start asking questions
and derailed laterr the entire term. and fast forward to 1980, jimmie carter against ronald reagan. and big story was the hostage release gave birth to night line and also birth to the american wondering would today be the day. october day right before the election came the release of the hostages. >> steve: surprise was, that republicans thought jimmie carter was sitting on the release of the hostages. he worked out a deal with the iranian to get them loose. he hadn't . 144 days and ronald reagan they were. >> gretchen: on the day of inauguration of ronald reagan. it feels like 2000, bush-gore. five-days came the revelation that george bush was arrested for an old drunk while driving. >> brian: dwi. driving while intoxicate the poems close we saw what happened. two monthses of not knowing who the president was. >> steve: two months later president bush squaring off with john kerry. and osama bin laden tape just a few days before election. john kerry told the associated press it changed the entire dynamic andagitated people over 9/11 . of course, john kerry lostt. >> brian: but kerry though
know what tax revenue did under ronald reagan? it went up 100% even though they cut taxes dramatically. tax revenue doubled in eight years. don't forget, you can catch the vice presidential debate tomorrow night here on cnbc beginning at 7:00 p.m. eastern time. >> let's go to jackie deangelis with this market flash. >> good afternoon, guys. taking a look at shares of walmart. of course, it hit record highs earlier in the session. coming off just a little bit. despite the fact that earlier the cfo reiterated fiscal 2013 sales guidance, maybe investors were looking for him to boost that up. he did reduce cap ex spending for 2013. the new reach, 12 to $13 billion. that could have something to do with it as well. the stock still higher on the day. just a little bit of a selloff. bill. >> i think those costco numbers helped the retailers today as well. a lot of the big box retailers doing well today. we're headi ining toward the cl. about 25 minutes left. we're hovering near the lows of the session with the dow down more than 130 points. >> the latest big company raising its dividend. why i

of a woman he first met in elementary school. like every campaign that cross swords with ronald reagan, chicago's arrogance blew up in their face. the question is whether barack obama will suffer the same fate as governor pat brown and president jim my carter. the answer to that question is anyone's guess. >> joe, when you write i picture clive owen and "love actually" when he's typing on the twirt. >> actually he's hunched over a computer. >> it's an ascot. >> just that whole scenic thing. >> do you have a pipe? >> good column. >> thank you. we would the big question before, mike, whether mitt romney was up to it before the debate. it was a fascinating question. can this guy that saved and turn around other organizations, can he not save himself? the great question being asked by democrats now, did we buy into something that wasn't what we thought we got? can he rise to the challenge? i personal think barack obama is going to answer the bell and do very well. >> definitely. >> i think the big problem is they were so arrogant, the entire operation, toward mitt romney. >> no doubt. >> n
of loopholes in the tax code that approach has distinguished lineage. ronald reagan and the 1986 congress invented this. in the upcoming talks on the fiscal cliff, we should scrap this. the old style of tax reform is obsolete in a 2012 world. it does not fit the times because there are two new conditions that did not exist in 1986 but are staring us in the face today. first, a much larger and much more dangerous deficit and second, a dramatic increase been income and inequality. old-style tax reform could make both conditions worse. but don't dismiss the old framework lightly. credit for the 1986 reform law belongs to democrats like bill bradley in the senate. just as much as to president reagan. as a member of the house back then, i not only voted for it, but i whipped the votes to make sure it passed. i was on the committee set up by dan rostenkowski to get it done. the approach made a good deal of sense at the time. then, as now, the code was littered with egregious loopholes that needed to be reformed. recall the so-called passive law schools that were in place back then. they allowed

] that's why gerald ford signed the earned income tax credit and ronald reagan said it was the best -- it took over 2 million children out of poverty. that why i started the child tax credit, and when president george w. bush cut the taxes for high income people, at least he doubled the child tax credit. and when president obama became president, and we were losing three quartering of a million dollars a month, he increased the earned income tax credit again and did something we want dotted is not cap it at three kids. if a working family had five kids, they could get more help. [cheering and applause] in other words, this was a bipartisan american commitment until now. now you know, we're a bunch of slackers, us democrats.

and democratic chairman and assistant to president ronald reagan, deputy assistant to the president at the white house, served on the white house chief of staff . talk about debate negotiations. how do you negotiate the debates? what are the terms that you're looking at? guest: this has become much more sophisticated over the years. when we negotiated the 1984 debates, the entire agreement was encompassed in three pages and now they go on for pages and pages. take into consideration every single requirement as far as lighting and staging and how you're going to address both candidates. do you call him mr. president or m r. obama. the color of the set all of those sorts of things. it's become a lot more complicated over the years. now, the commission on presidential debates, who i think do a very good job, they get heavily involved now too. they're involved in the process. host: what do you think lot was made of the moderator from the first debate, jim lehrer. how he moderated the debate? the commission came out with a statement days after said he did what he asked him to do. these were the gr

have a conservative that many say is the heir to ronald reagan and jack kemp. you have a progressive vice president who the democrats and liberals are looking for passion. let's be honest, you also have two people who could factor into 2016 presidential calculations. if mitt romney loses, paul ryan is an early front-runner for republicans. if barack obama wins, joe biden is telling people yes, i might be getting up there in age, but i feel great. i might run. >> let's talk about joe biden for a minute. remember last time they said you don't want to come off as condescending to sarah palin or even sexist. does the same thing aplay here? obviously not the sexist part, but condescending to someone younger than him for a paul ryan who seems to be new? does that challenge exist in this particular debate? >> reporter: well, i think that challenge exists in every debate. certainly it was different to have, you know, you're having a man debating a woman. that's a different calculation. but you don't want to be smug in any debate. it was interesting, you know, a lot of people after the first
romney in this case, michelle obama and president obama and nancy reagan, ronald reagan. at the same time, you know, are we finding that ann romney is taking on kind of a greater role in helping to shape the image of her husband? apparently and reportedly she and one of their sons actually had like a real heart to heart with mitt romney and said there's got to be more of you that comes out. you've got to make this more personal. >> i know there was a story there, you but that is one of the things that -- a role that a campaign spouse plays is the sense to be the truth teller. a spouse can't get fired. they're not going anywhere. i think that's what they and sons and daughters do in campaigns and that's why they become very available. they are there because people can go to them. in terms of mrs. romney's role, she's been around. she's been the first lady of massachusetts. she -- you know, she has been involved in the campaign since day one. she probably has good insights on how to her husband a more notable to the american people. >> during the convention, we saw that she was trying to se
